of images from the scene, brian ross leads our coverage from boston. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning. there's a growing sense of confidence here this morning based on the fbi discovery of a video that appears to catch the moment when a man placed a bag with one of the bombs. officials tell abc news that the best view of the possible suspect comes from a high definition camera at the lord and taylor department store. these shots broadcast by whdh before and then after the blast also played a key role according to authorities. officials so far have declined to make public any image of the man they now suspect. much of the review of the evidence is being done by a special team of agents who have set up in a restricted area near the boston harbor, the so called operational technology division. this is where the evidence is brought for examination and where agents can use special facial recognition software to turn faces into names. >> there is software that allows for facial recognition, even at a distance. it's not 100%, but even a 70 or 80% correlation would narrow down the num

's chief investigative correspondent, brian ross, has the latest details and the new clues. >> reporter: u.s. authorities now believe a turning point for tamerlan tsarnaev came last year in the russian republic of dagestan, at this mosque known to be a gathering spot for extremists. russian security services have told their american counterparts the boston resident was seen meeting and leaving from the mosque with a known chechen terror recruiter, mansur nidal, who was killed in a stand-off with authorities while tsarnaev was in dagestan. the chechen insurgency is part of a larger violent group that has used a reign of terror in its efforts to impose islamic law and values across portions of russia. who moved to dagestan earlier and became part of the chechen terror group. plotnikov was killed by russian authorities in july of last year. tsarnaev last the country two days later for boston. russian authorities asked the u.s. to investigate tsarnaev two years ago, but did not provide specific new details until after the marathon attack. president obama said today he's asked for a full intell

[ explosion ] for all the fear and drama that the attacks produced, the younger brother reportedly told agents, it was almost entirely done from the internet, homegrown, with no direction from overseas. they used an al qaeda internet description of how to make a pressure cooker bomb. >> they took a very simple recipe and targeted -- the boston marathon.

anything like it. brian ross on the ground in watertown right now. thousands of police converging on that small town and the other surrounding suburbs of boston. >> reporter: george, i would say not since september 11th of 2001 has it been a sense of powerlessness by the people who live in america that they are at the mercy of unknown terrorists, they've been asked in boston to stay inside, lock their doors, not go out. it's an astounding situation. they haven't really seen in 12 years. >> and, brian, we just heard pierre tell us a few moments ago about one of the killers, the suspect now dead, just walking cooley towards police. do the police have any idea in which direction the suspect number two headed when he was in that mercedes suv? >> reporter: they thought he took off. they thought they had surrounded him in here, but there's been reports since then of spotting him elsewhere and we're just about -- yeah. and we're about to get another announcement. le -- >> the chief the transit on his office.ent will brief you macllin. he will not take any statements. chief? >> good morni

no evidence it was a foreign attack. brian ross on nbc news reported that iraq was behind the attack and i told him his report was wrong. there was still an urge from abc news to describe that as a terrorist attack. you do have to just be guarded until you know. even if it is domestic, you don't know who is behind it, what the reasons are, et cetera. so, again, until you know, don't reach conclusions. let law enforcement and people who wear the uniform, police be the first responders in the communication war as well. the communication response i should say as well to what has happened. the white house should lag behind the others. they're on the ground. they'll get the facts first and then brief the white house. that sequence makes perfect sense. >> ari fleischer, thank you very much. backing how the president responded to this event so far. to those of you just joining us, i want to go through the latest on what we know about the attack in boston today. two people are dead and according to our affiliate, one of the victims is an 8-year-old child. at least 110 have been injured right now.
